I love collecting pendants. I have a lot of them. When I say a lot, I mean a LOT. I don´t know why I collect pendants when I hardy ever wear a necklace except when I feel like prettifying myself which I do rarely (that is when I go out). This is just a sample of them which I think have also appeared in my blogs.
All my pendants have pet names. I like calling them by their pet names. Do you do that too? ;) The first one is the mask because it reminds me of of a Venetian mask or an African mask like ones below.
The next one is called the black pilgrim. I bought this in Santiago ( St. James) de Compostela when we did the Galician trip last year. All pilgrims carry a sea shell with them when they travel and pay homage to the body of St. James in Compostela. I wasn´t an official pilgrim per se because I cheated. I didn´t go there walking, mounted on a bike or on a horse, I went there by train. hahaha! The shell´s made of azabache. A black stone believed to ward off evil.

The next one´s my window catedral. You know those stained glass windows usually found on churches? Well, this pendant reminds me of them. On a sweeter note, my childhood friend S used to make a dessert called window cathedral made of cooked seaweed jelly (in different colors) with cream. It was so delicious, I could still feel the creamy tase on my mouth. Yum, yum!
The last one´s the scarab. It reminds me of the movie The Mummy. Only that this one doesn´t have antlers, isn´t deadly and is gold plated. I bought this on sale at my favorite jewelry store here 2 years ago. Sometimes, I also think of this is as my Incan pendant.
More to come soon. Just give me time to photograph most of them. So are you a pendant lover? Do you have pet names for them too? The nice thing about pendants is that you don´t need a separate chain for each of them. You only need a silver and gold chain, et voila, you already have a new necklace every time you dress up! ;)
Bye for now, enjoy your weekend, everyone! :)
